Tilda Swinton asleep in a glass box at MoMA The Museum of Modern Art. very cool, a statement to voyeurism/celebrityism? also slightly creepy, especially with the prison denim/cot. am I reading too much into this?
‘This is an original 1920′s display from the “American Museum of Natural History”. The display was modeled under the direction of Professor William King Gregory. He was a Professor at Columbia University from 1909 and the Museum Curator from 1920. The framed size is 22″ x 28″. There are 10 different example skulls with original paper labels and a detailed key showing the “Evolution of the Human Skull.”'
As if starring in David Bowie music videos wasnt already the coolest, Tilda Swinton has currently taken up residency sleeping at MoMA. Its part of an unannounced, surprise performance piece called The Maybe that will be taking place on random days all month year (see updated details below). A MoMA source told us, Museum staff doesnt know shes coming until the day of, but shes here today. Shell be there the whole day. All thats in the box is cushions and a water jug.
